Murfreesboro mosque wants to expand cemetery
by Scott Broden
The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro wants permission to expand a cemetery on its 15-acre property.
Mosque representatives are scheduled to attend the Rutherford County Board of Zoning Appeals meeting Dec. 11. The 4:30 p.m. meeting will take place in the second-floor courtroom of the Rutherford County Courthouse on the public square in Murfreesboro.
The Islamic Center of Murfreesboro secured permission to build its mosque on Veals Road off Bradyville Pike from the county's Regional Planning Commission in May 2010. Before the meeting, County Planning Director Doug Demosi approved the congregation's request to bury one member on the property but informed the mosque it would have to seek board of zoning appeals approval to expand the cemetery.
